Overview

The opening episode of Northern Exposure's fifth season is even more surrealistic than usual, which is saying quite a lot considering the quirky goings on in the Alaskan village of Cicely. Said opener is "Three Doctors, in which the town's New York-bred doctor, Joel Fleischman (Rob Morrow), aspiring Native American filmmaker Ed Chigliak (Darren E. Burrows), and newlywed Shelly Tambo-Vincoeur (Cynthia Geary) find themselves enmeshed in a cosmic game of hide and seek. Other memorable season five episodes include "Jaws of Life, in which everyone's nerves are on edge in anticipation of the annual visit by the dentist (Jay O. Sanders); "A River Doesn't Run Through It, wherein sexy 31-year-old mail pilot Maggie O'Donnell (Janine Turner) is asked to be the local high school's homecoming queen (and as a bonus, one of the students is played by Jack Black!); "Rosebud, featuring director Peter Bogdanovich in a story built around Cicely's first film festival; and "A Cup of Joe, in which Shelly's husband, Holling (John Cullum), and storekeeper Ruth-Anne (Peg Phillips) discover that one of their grandparents ate the other one during the "Blizzard of '97." And there's more! The town's resident gay couple, Ron (Doug Ballard) and Erick (Don R. McManus) decide to get married; Shelly gives birth to a daughter named Miranda, who is promptly designated Cicely's 844th citizen; the whole town conspires to cure the redoubtable Walt Kupfer (Moultrie Patten) of his galloping depression; and in the season finale, "Lovers and Madmen, eternal outsider Joel finally resigns himself to the fact that he is a true Son of Cicely.

I just bought this dvd the day after it came out and I absolutely love it. Season 5 is by far the best season of N.E. I especially like the one where Joel precribes Walt a light visor and he gets addicted to it (probably my favorite episode). Although most fans of N.E. believe that the earlier seasons were better, I disagree. Northern Exposure got even better as the characters developed during the later seasons (3-6). Other episodes that are really great are "Mite Makes Right" where Maurice buys an expensive violin and this crazy violinist believes that it will lose it's tone, so he blows up Maurice's truck. Another great one is where Maurice gets a wax dummy of himself, tries to donate to a museum, and is spooked by it. My other favorite one is where Ruth-Anne discovers that Holling's grandfather ate her grandfather during an expedition that took place over 100 years ago. I think Maggie looks much better in this season compared to the earlier ones, because she has longer hair in this one. Another great thing about this box set compared to the other sets is that the discs are single sided, which are more durable than double sided discs (That's why there are 5 discs, verses 2 or 3 in the other ones). A perfect gift for any N.E. fan.
